32-year-old RN Jonathan Swader of Chattanooga was jailed Friday morning after officers observed a truck improperly parked in the grass on Old Hickory Boulevard. He was reportedly asleep in the driver’s seat with the keys in the ignition. The truck was on, but the engine was not running, and the transmission was neutral. He woke up confused and made incoherent statements. He was asked several times to exit the vehicle and stumbled while doing so. Swader admitted to consuming two beers at a “low-key bar” along with two shots of tequila and another beer at the Bridgestone Arena. He declined to provide a breath sample, nor would he consent to sobriety tests. After he was arrested, he admitted to drinking before driving.
